Why Trump is leaving 195 countries accord of Climate change Paris agreement?

Climate change is already impacting the planet, but the specific goal of the Paris Agreement is to prevent the planet from warming by more than 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit), which scientists warn could have especially damaging consequences

The Paris Agreement is a deal reached between 195 countries to gradually reduce emissions that cause climate change in order to prevent a major increase in the global temperatures that could raise sea levels, spark major droughts, and lead to more dangerous storms.

The agreement, which was negotiated in 2015 and took effect in November 2016, was spurred by the overwhelming global scientific consensus that rising global temperatures over the last several decades are caused by man-made activity.

3 reasons why Trump is not interested

Number 1: He has repeatedly tweeted and said in campaign speeches that climate change is a “hoax” and even suggested that China — another frequent Trump target — was behind the plot. China won’t end using fossil fuels

Number 2: Trump has rattled allies by criticizing trade agreements and military alliances.

Number 3: Trump is not a fan of the regulations and spending that the previous administration proposed to meet its goals, which he warns will reduce economic growth.

What happens if the US withdraws

The agreement won’t fall apart overnight. Already, reports suggest China and the European Union are prepared to publicly recommit to the agreement with or without the United States. Some experts say China appears to be reducing emissions ahead of schedule, in part because the country is phasing out coal quicker to reduce choking smog in its major cities.

Trump also can’t technically withdraw from the agreement until November 2019. It’s possible he could speed things up by abandoning the underlying Senate-approved climate treaty that the agreement is linked to.

China is desparate to impact world’s economy.

A top Chinese diplomat has said that China is ready to lead the world economy if other nations should retreat from globalization.

Zhang Jun, the Chinese foreign ministry’s head of international economic affairs, told foreign reporters in Beijing that “if it’s necessary for China to play the role of leader, then China must take on this responsibility,” reports the Wall Street Journal.

Zhang’s comments come just days after President Donald Trump pledged to put “America first” in his inaugural address, which followed Chinese President Xi Jinping’s plea for the continuation of global trade at last week’s World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

“If people want to say China has taken a position of leadership, it’s not because China suddenly thrust itself forward as a leader,” Zhang told the reporters. “It’s because the original front-runners suddenly fell back and pushed China to the front.”

In addition to Trump’s protectionism, British Prime Minister Theresa May recently gave a speech detailing how her government intends to take the U.K. out of the European Union and the EU’s Single Market.x

The Chinese word for “economy” means “for society to prosper and benefit the people”, an aim of governance advocated by Chinese sages in ancient times. It is also an important governance concept cherished by the Communist Party of China. In the first three-quarters of 2016, China’s economy grew by 6.7 percent year-on-year, and its per capita disposable income registered a growth of 6.3 percent. In the first 11 months of the year, China created 12.49 million new jobs in cities and townships and lifted more than 10 million people out of poverty, further raising Chinese people’s sense of well-being and happiness. Against the backdrop of the global economic slowdown, it has really not been easy for China to make these achievements.

And, in recent times, remarkable progress has also been made in China’s infrastructure, such as the railway extension to the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, the building of a comprehensive highway network throughout the country, the construction of the Three Gorges Dam and multiple ports that better connect the country with the ocean. A set of complete industrial sectors have been established and China has realized a bumper agricultural harvest for many years in succession. At the same time, China has achieved new breakthroughs in its aerospace development and further built up its national defense capabilities.

China is expected to have good economic prospects in 2017. The convention of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China due to take place later this year will formulate and implement some major policy measures, which will bring the market and society positive and stable expectations. Economic globalization and trade liberalization remain the general global economic trends. China is scheduled to host an international cooperation summit forum on the Belt and Road Initiative and the ninth leaders’ meeting of BRICS countries as part of its efforts to push for the building of an innovative, open, interactive, and inclusive world economy. All these mean China will inject into the world economy “Chinese dividends” that are full of hope in 2017.

In his 2017 New Year address, President Xi Jinping stressed that Chinese people have long believed that “the world is a commonwealth”. Chinese people not only hope to live better lives themselves, they also hope people in the rest of the world can as well.

President Xi Jinping’s attendance at the upcoming World Economic Forum Annual Meeting will inevitably facilitate China working with other countries to promote the building of a community of shared destiny and the recovery of the world economy, so the fruits of global development can benefit the people of every country.

Managers reaction on Chelsea lifting trophy 2016/17

Michy Batshuayi was the unlikely hero on a night when Chelsea wrapped up their sixth title in the face of surprisingly obdurate resistance from West Brom. His 82nd-minute winner sparked wild celebrations among Chelsea’s players, backroom team and traveling fans that are likely to last long into the night. Thanks for your time and have a great weekend. We’ll have plenty more live action for you in the coming days.

 

The Chelsea manager on the logic behind his double substitutions: “I think during the game you can allow to do this change [taking Hazard and Pedro off],” he said. “This moment of the game I think Hazard was a bit tired and also Pedro, and I wanted to give more energy with Michy and Willian. I think that Michy paid me a lot with this change but it’s great for me, this is my first season. It wasn’t easy for me to arrive in England to try a different habit, a different language and also a lot of players after a bad season.”

The Chelsea manager on the tactics that helped win him the title – specifically, changing to a back three after suffering a hiding at the hands of Arsenal. “I think this decision to change our system won this league because in the first part of the season we didn’t have the right balance,” he said. “And when I saw after two defeats against Liverpool and Arsenal … bad defeats, not simple defeats, I knew I needed to change and find a new situation for my team. In my mind, there was this option to change and play with a 3-4-3 because I know the characteristic of Willian and Pedro – number 10. To play with only one forward and two number 10s made us more solid in our defense.”

Chelsea Reaction

“It’s amazing to celebrate something with the fans and especially when the game was so difficult,” says Eden Hazard.

Alongside him, Marcos Alonso is pleased to have won his first major honor in football. “I think we had the confidence for the 90 minutes but we knew it was going to be tough,” he says. “I am delighted and hopefully there is more to come.”

String of records that dragged Pakistan team to no 1 ranking in Test : Misbah

He had remained under immense crictics which normally every emerging and successor encounters on his way to achieve an unachieved. He was and is known as Tuk Tuk’ for his batting style but most often that approach takes them towards leading side. Normally it is said ‘ one who has no critics is not progressing.

There have been three great captains of Pakistan. The first was A.H. Kardar, the country’s first Test captain. Born in Lahore, and talent-spotted by the senior Nawab of Pataudi, Kardar played for India before Partition. He led Pakistan to victory over India in its second-ever Test match in Lucknow in 1952, and even more famously over England at the Oval Test in August 1954. Uniquely, Kardar won at least one Test match in Pakistan’s inaugural series against each other country.

Pakistan’s next great captain was Imran Khan, the all-rounder who inspired his country to a famous World Cup victory in 1992 and later stepped in Pakistan most difficult profession known as Politics.

The third is Misbah-ul-Haq, and he has a claim to be the greatest. On statistics alone his claim is indisputable: 20 wins in 42 Tests as captain. Imran had 14 wins in 48 Tests, Kardar six in 23.

In the midst of sequence of unfortunate events, Misbah holds the veins of the cricket team. The first was the terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore in 2009. This incident immediately took Pakistan to international isolation. Ever since no team was ready to play on our soil. Cricket is the only sport which brings the people on one note and if you take away that no one can imagine how the worst outcome could be. Pakistan’s international players have been condemned to a perpetual shuttle between foreign hotel rooms, cut off from extended family and community networks which count for so much in Pakistan. So-called ‘home’ matches are played in the UAE, in echoing deserted stadiums.

The second tragedy happened the following year when the Pakistan team went on England tour. Three of its players, including the captain, Salman Butt, and its brilliant young opening bowler, Mohammad Amir, were entrapped by the News of the World. The team was disgraced and the three players involved were later sent to jail. A real downcast.

At that dark hour, there was a reason to doubt the survival of Pakistan cricket. That was when Misbah took over. He was not an obvious choice as captain. He had a mixed Test record and was not even selected for the 2010 Tour, nor the one before in 2006. He was already 36 — ancient for a modern player.

Yet he proved an inspired choice. He had exactly the right qualities to lead his team at its moment of supreme crisis. He has not only anchored the batting time and time again but given his team a mental and moral example.

In both tasks he has been magnificently supported by his lieutenant Younus Khan, now Pakistan’s highest-scoring Test batsman, although the two men are very different on and off the pitch. Younus is voluble and extrovert and always seems on the move; Misbah is calm and cerebral, measured in speech and motion. They do share an intense patriotism and devotion to their families.

Misbah-ul-Haq was raised in Mianwali, in Punjab. He is related to Imran Khan’s father and a member of the same Niazi clan. Both his parents were educators and made him give academic work priority over cricket. He gained an MBA at the University of Management and Technology in Lahore, a qualification which makes him one of the best-educated cricketers in the modern era. His studies of leadership skills and human resource management delayed his entry to the first-class game until he was 24, but have been of lasting value to him as captain.

He is one of those rare cricketers whose Test performance has been massively enhanced by the duties of captaincy. Before 2010, Misbah had scored 1,008 runs in 33 Tests at an average of 33.60. Since becoming Captain, he has scored a further 3,344 runs in 42 Tests, at an average of 56.68.

‘Responsibility,’ Misbah told us, ‘has always given me a lot of confidence to face the music and perform.’

As a Test captain, Misbah has the priceless gift of looking as though he always has a plan on the field. In fact, he usually does. He has gained victories with an inexperienced attack since the loss of his former matchwinner, the spinner Saeed Ajmal, with a suspect action. When he led Pakistan to a 2 – 0 victory over England last winter in the UAE, none of his bowlers had taken 100 Test wickets.

Misbah is now 42. Assuming he captains in the fourth Test at the Oval he will be the oldest Test captain since the mighty Warwick Armstrong of Australia in 1921. He is barely half Armstrong’s 22 stone in weight: he and Younus (aged 38) are reputedly the fittest players in the Pakistan party.

Like his predecessors, Misbah has had clashes with selectors, administrators, media and fellow players. His undemonstrative style has sometimes made him undervalued in his own country. However, he commands a personal authority to match Khan, Steve Waugh for Australia or even Sir Frank Worrell in the West Indies.

Again with Younus’s help, he should get the best from an exciting Pakistan line-up. Misbah’s most difficult task is to guide Mohammad Amir, still only in his rehabilitation, back into Test cricket. If he succeeds, Amir and his partner, Wahab Riaz, could become one of the best left-arm opening attacks in cricket history.

The other bowling priority will be the legspinner, Yasir Shah, returning after a three-month drugs ban, who on his day is a magician to match his predecessors Abdul Qadir and Mushtaq Ahmed. Pakistan’s batting is sketchy. However, Misbah will hope that the stroke makers Mohammad Hafeez, Shan Masood, Azhar Ali, Asad Shafiq and the bouncy wicketkeeper Sarfraz Ahmed can take the strain from himself and Younus.

Misbah and his team will enjoy far more support from British Asian cricket lovers than in their ‘home’ Tests in the UAE. This great man is coming to the end of his career and deserves a farewell to match Don Bradman’s at the Oval 1948. His achievement has been epic. Like Bradman, he has been far more than a simple cricketer. For his six years at the helm of the national team, Misbah has helped to bind Pakistan together as a nation.
